If your anything like my large family, packing for camping trip can be super frustrating! Having an RV Camper Supply List can make getting everything in order a huge time saver not to mention being able to go over the list prior to the trip and see what may be needed. This way, you are not power shopping at midnight the night before for the things you are missing (Believe me! We’ve done this before!)

The rest of this article is a list which is broken into different parts to help keep it organized (which is not always something my family can do πŸ™‚ )


Let’s start with the essentials. There are always things like that second pair of swim socks that are not really needed, because you have never used them on any other trip before that you will want to pack. However, there are the important items that you will really need to think about packing. Some of these items include phone and electrical adapters, extension cords and don’t forget the toilet paper!!! Here is a full list of items you can pack which are essential. Please note this RV camper supply list is in no special order other than categories. It was a list that was put together while actually packing.

One last area I would like to cover, but does not necessarily need a checklist is regarding to your home. If you are going to be away for an extended time, make sure you have the post office hold your mail, stop any services like lawn care or newspaper delivery, etc., turn off all appliances and make sure your refrigerator is empties. The last thing you want to come home to after having an awesome trip is a bunch of moldy food! You also may want to set timers for lights or get smart plugs (so you can set a schedule and turn the lights on and off via a cell phone) and set the temperature as needed while your away.

This is surely not an all extensive RV Camper Supply List, but these items will surely help you go through and make sure you do not end up somewhere and find out you cannot plugin or have running water. Also, to help make your shopping easier, you can find all these items in Amazon.

Is there something you believe is missing from this list? Let us know! Also make sure you read about Boondocking so you ensure you have the right items when not having running water or electricity.
